RESTAURANT SAVU - Smoked taste experiences in a log storehouse of the 19th century

Savu has a beautiful location on Tervasaari Island, within walking distance from the Market Square. From the island you have a nice view towards the city, for example Uspenski Cathedral and to the Arctic Ice Breakers which are located on Kanavaranta pier during summer.

The Tervasaari Storehouse, built in 1805, for storing tar barrels, creates the unique milieu for Restaurant Savu. In the old days households were counted based on the number of smoke (=Savu) plumes you could see rising from a village. At Savu we use smoke-curing, one of the oldest methods of cooking- in preparing majority of the dishes served. Our most famous dessert is pancakes prepared by our special pancake chef and you can eat as many pancakes as you wish when having a three course meal.
